Default 2nd Generation Astrocam Decal wanted

A few years ago I flew an Astrocam at a park with a friend. We each had a launch system setup and the Astocam was dialed in, landing nearby on each flight and I flew it about 8 times on a mix of C6-7s and 5s. I ran out of motors and packed up my gear. My friend flew his last flight but then said he had another C if I wanted it. I repacked the Astrocam and put it on his port-a-pad. The rod whipped badly and the A-C arched way over and was streamlining down pointing at a tree when it deployed and stripped the chute partly, and plopped into the top of a tree in front of a house. I left my number at the house and 6 months later the owner called and said it had come down. I raced over and they handed only the Astocam camera to me, they didnít find the body or fins. My friend later encouraged me to develop the film and I was excited when I got some pics.

A few months ago a loose Astrocam fin can came up that I bought, and today I ordered an ST-13 from erockets to replace the booster.

I need the decals to finish the repair, the best would be an unused set, the decals are the ones with red roll patterns from the yellow bodied booster.

If no one has the decals they can part with, a clean scan of the decals would be the next best thing, I wasnít able to find a clean scan.

Thanks for looking

I scanned the decal file for you but can't seem to upload it here (getting an invalid page specified error) if you pm me your email address I can send it to you in tiff or png file formats.
Where's the Kaboom?

I like the unusual, the off beat, the avant-garde. No 3/4 FNC for me!

That's the 2nd version of the Astrocam Livery... Lemme see if I have a scan with a ruler for you to scale it.... Sorry, nope, mine was damaged by a $H1++Y job of packing by an ebay vendor.


Dreaming of making the rockets I dreamed of as a kid (and then some).

"The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack."
"The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Launching is Optional... Landing? That Depends on Trees.

That thar's a quality tube you got there.
Was there a "BOOT PRINT" on the package ?
Or possibly a tire tread mark ?
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
